In addition to support from Intense (intensecycles.com) and Suspension Center (suspensioncenter.ch), Team SC Intense will be powered by Nukeproof Components, Fox Racing Shox, Formula Brakes, Alpine Stars, Mavic Wheels, Schwalbe Tires, SCprobag, Gamut Chainguides, SRAM Drivetrain, Scott, THE Helmets, RapidRacerProducts and Turbospoke!. The team will also be receiving support from its medical partner Lindenhof Hospital, Bern Switzerland.
Gery Peyer of Suspension Center, who will manage Team SC Intense, commented “Team SC Intense are delighted to be running with NukeProof components in 2011. We are determined to only use quality products, as we know the importance of tough and reliable parts in avoiding mechanicals and huge disappointment on the race track. We will be running NukeProof components on our new Intense M9 WC race bikes, and feel that the quality and great looks of the new NukeProof range are a great fit for Team SC Intense.”
Team SC Intense will be taking delivery of their new bikes early in the New Year and are looking forward to a successful 2011 season.
